Philosopher Gilles Deleuze has described nonsense as the “highest finality of sense”. Nonsense is not simply absurdity nor is it the antithesis of sense, but rather it creates contradiction and paradox. For Deleuze this paradox of nonsense is an active and pivotal mode for understanding the nature and construction of thought and learning.
